imagine everyone you knew hands tied and standing in a queue.
this could be serious.
surround the house with every dead.
this could be serious.
it could be so deadly deadly serious.
collecting diamonds from the fabric of the ocean.
collecting diamonds from domestic mines.
and risking all our lives for nothing.
and in a fortnight they'll know everything about us.
our brightest qualities, our cruelest lies.
recording all our noise for nothing.
we're making every noise we know.
reciting every curse we know.
that could be dangerous.
communication can be very impetuous.
so so so so very impetuous.
collecting diamonds from the fabric of the ocean.
collecting diamonds and some worthless stones.
and risking all our lives for nothing.
and in a year they'll forget everything about us.
our harshest qualities, our private jokes.
and selling all our noise for nothing.
i cannot be found (he cannot be found)
buried in the ground. (buried in the ground and so we sing)
please help me sir, i'm desperate.
and i have no sense, no song to sing.
please help me sir, i'm clean.
please help me sir, i'm desperate.
and i am no jewel, no diamond ring.
no part of your collection.
please help me sir, i'm desperate. (na nana nananana na na nanana)
and i have no sense, no song to sing.(na nana nananana na na nanana)
please help me sir, i'm clean.(na nana nananana na na nanana)
please help me sir, i'm desperate.(na nana nananana na na nanana)
and i am no jewel, no diamond ring.(na nana nananana na na nanana)
no part of your collection.(na nana nananana na na nanana)
repeat to end
